Himself Through the Head
When tho roport began to be circu
lated about 10 o'clock yesterday morn
nig that Mr. Edward Myell, one of the
best known and most highly respected
citizens of our city, had shot himself
with suicidnl intent, thcro wero many
who refused to beliovo it, but an in
vestigation proved tho report only too
true.
Mr. Myall had been confined to his
homo since Sunday, suffering with a
sovcro cold and acuto neuralgia, Ho
lad been 'subject to these attacks of
neuralgia for many years, but this one,
it seemed, caused him moro intense
pain than usual. Ho was apparently
resting fairly well in bed when his wife
Iff I him about 0 o'clock to attend to
sime household duties and when sho re
turned ho had left tho room. The
Mi position is thnt ono of thoso sovoro
attacks came upon him suddenly and so
c'azod him that ho sprang from his
Lei? and partly dressing himself, ran
U stirs, grabbed a revolver and went
out onto an enclosed porch, whero he
was found with a bullet hole in his
right temple.
Mr. Myall was born in Stratford-on-A
win, England, Shakespeare's home,
October .'10, 1831, and came to this coun
try when IS years of age, s-ettling at
Mayslick, where for many e.irs he
(onducted a wagon shop, and gained for
himself tho reputation of being the
bent wagon maker in this section of
Kentucky.
lie came to Maysville about 3i years
ago, and engaged in the undertaking
Mid buggy business with tho lato S;un
.1. lfiley, which business ho successfully
conducted until about 10 jenrs ago,
when ho retired.
Ho is survived by his wife and one
son, Mr. E. C. Myall, and ono daughter,
Mrs W. W. Hail, both of this city.
'the funeral will be held Friday morn
ing at 10 o'clock from the residence of
Mi. W. W. Ball. Services by He v. A.
P. Stnhl of tho Chiistiau church, of
which Mr. Myall was a member for
u.any years.
Tho shocking death of this good cit
l'on is too heartrending to dwell upon.
J lis end is most distressing, but Hod
will pardon his obedient son, for ho
kuiw not what ho did. -
May tho sod lie lightly over Edward
Myall.

problems.
Interesting, eloquent, scholarly, Mr.
Long kept his audicuco with him at all
times and it was generally conceded

over heard in this city.
